Lee Ashford of Reader’s Favorite writes; “'Lady Justice and the Vet' by Robert Thornhill is a poignant, faithfully accurate story, which could have been taken from today's headlines. Mr. Thornhill, with each new episode of the Lady Justice series, continues to surpass himself. Within the pages of 'Lady Justice and the Vet,' Robert Thornhill has presented a better, more realistic dissertation on the plight of All combat veterans, to whom we as a nation owe our all, than any I have seen anywhere else. Thornhill has brilliantly used a fictional comedic mystery story to force us to remove the blinders and take a peek at reality. 'Lady Justice and the Vet' should be required reading for every politician.

“'Lady Justice and the Vet' takes aim at the atrocious mistreatment of our veterans who require far more and far better access to both physical and psychological restoration. It focuses on the high unemployment rate, the nightmares, the disabilities, and the lack of respect. Mr. Thornhill has an uncanny talent for bringing our attention to a serious problem while also entertaining and amusing us. Robert Thornhill's house will one day be a National Monument. Okay, maybe that's a little over the top, but he is a very good storyteller, and a very good writer. I anticipate with great relish each new release in his Lady Justice series. His writing is superlative, and his ability to inform and amuse, almost in the same sentence, makes him a consummate storyteller. However, don't take my word for it; buy one of his Lady Justice stories - it doesn't really matter which one - and see for yourself.”
